Strictly Come Dancing contestant Richard Dunwoody has backed himself with a bet to win this years ballroom show.

The former champion jockey has linked up with his friend bookmaker Paddy Power to place a £1000 charity bet that he goes all the way – and at odds of 33/1 to win this years show a Dunwoody victory would return £33,000 for his Trust which benefits the likes of Racing Welfare, Sparks, Spinal Research and Alzheimers.

Paddy Power said:

Richard would be too modest to ask for your votes but Im not. Just like in his racing days Richard could well be this years Peoples Champion on the show, maybe well have another John Sergeant to enjoy!

Paddy Power has also started a Facebook Fanpage for fans of the champion jockey to show their support – including a video of Paddy and Richard discussing this years runners and riders on the show.

Paddy Power are also betting on Dunwoodys points score on Friday night, making a tally of 16-20 points the most likely at 7/4. However it looks as though the jockey will have to crack the whip to win the competition with Ricky Whittle and Ali Bastian the hot favourites at 2/1 and 9/4 respectively.
